Cliffside Malibu - Hazy Beach Cliffs

Drug Abuse Intervention

As with any form of intervention, a drug abuse intervention is a way that, when done successfully, will help you to see exactly how your drug abuse is affecting you and those around you. An intervention of any form or fashion is usually a last resort, an action taken when nothing else has made you willing to seek help for your addiction. Why do you need to know this? In short, realizing that your drug abuse forced your family and loved ones to take this action not only to save your life, but also to protect themselves from your drug abuse, will help you to forgive what you may view as a betrayal. You will, as you progress in your drug abuse treatment, realize that your drug abuse intervention was only an act of love and concern, nothing less and nothing more.

At Cliffside Malibu, we will help you rebuild the relationships broken by your drug abuse and we will help you to comprehend the reasons behind your drug abuse intervention because both are crucial to your recovery. We, Cliffside Malibu, also believe that being in comfortable settings that offer a variety of treatments are also crucial to your reaching lasting sobriety, which is why we offer both. If you or a loved one has any questions concerning a drug abuse intervention or the treatment that will follow,please call us, Cliffside Malibu, today at (424) 320-3061.

Your Actions

At this point in your life, you may have difficulty accepting the fact that your actions led to your drug abuse intervention. In fact, even if you are enrolled in a luxury drug rehab center such as Cliffside Malibu, you may still have trouble, at least in the beginning, admitting that your drug abuse intervention was an action of love. It is normal to still feel some resistance, in your self, to the fact that you and your drug addiction are the root of your problems and the reason you faced a drug abuse intervention. However, in order for your intervention and the treatments that followed to be truly successful, you will have to accept the responsibility of your actions. You have to clearly see that your actions did, indeed, lead to your drug abuse intervention.

This is one of the first goals at Cliffside Malibu, following your drug abuse intervention, the creation of your individualized treatment plan, and your detox period. We know that it is crucial to your recovery to understand that there is a difference in admitting you have a problem with drugs and accepting responsibility for your actions. At Cliffside Malibu, you will be offered a variety of counseling, therapy, group meetings, and holistic treatments such as yoga and meditation to help you realize and understand that your actions led to your drug abuse intervention.

Confronting the Truth

As difficult, stressful, and emotional as it will be, a drug abuse intervention is meant to help you see the truth. Drug abuse can be defined by your addiction to a substance, such as drugs and/or alcohol, and your mental and physical need to have that substance on a consistent basis just to be able to function. Moreover, drug abuse and addiction can be defined by your using your substance of choice no matter what the consequences are. As a drug abuser, you do not realize how self-destructive your drug habits are and, moreover, you cannot see how you are hurting those around you in the process.

This is the truth that a drug abuse intervention helps you to see. The realization of just how detrimental your drug abuse is becoming is the only way that you might be willing to seek help from a drug abuse treatment center. However, even with a drug abuse intervention, you may not fully comprehend the consequences of your action until you are sober.

At Cliffside Malibu, we understand the very nature of drug abuse and the purpose of an intervention. We understand that you may need help realizing what your drug abuse has done to you and everyone you care about. This is why we offer a variety of drug treatment programs, a luxury setting, and an amazing support team to help you through your struggles.

Intervention to Treatment

While this may be the most obvious statement, your drug abuse intervention leads to your drug abuse treatment. What other point would there be to make you go through something as emotionally vulnerable as a drug abuse intervention if it did not lead to your enrolling in a treatment center. A drug intervention can be defined as a last effort to make you realize your drug addiction and seek help for it. Therefore, on the risk of sounding redundant, if you are going or have been through a drug abuse intervention, it will lead to the option of addiction treatment.

As already stated and this is a point that cannot be emphasized enough, drug abuse blinds the abuser to the reality of their situation. As a drug abuser, you need to hear this over and over again, as many times as it takes for you to understand, a drug abuse intervention is something that will force you to look at your life and seriously work towards reaching sobriety. Until you make this realization, you will be stuck in the cycle of your drug abuse.

Life After Intervention

Believe it or not, life after your drug abuse intervention, the life you will begin in a drug treatment center such as Cliffside Malibu, will actually be less stressful than before the intervention. This is not to say that your rehabilitation process will be easy; however, in a treatment center such as ours, Cliffside Malibu, you will be surrounded by luxury and comfort, without having to worry about finding that next fix or what it will cost you to get your drug. Our location on a private estate in beautiful Malibu California is the best place for you to get sober and begin your recovery. Moreover, now that you have realized how harmful your drug abuse was, you only have sobriety to reach for and work towards.
